Two Upcycled Thrift Shop Finds for my Farmhouse Style Kitchen


My first thrift shop find is the this wooden "Measure" sign.  It didn't come with hooks but I have seen these before for measuring spoons or measuring cups a while back.


I gave the sign a couple of coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White, and distressed it with 220 grit sandpaper.

I screwed in some silver colored cup hooks from Menards, and hung some mismatched measuring cups for a rustic farmhouse look.

Upcycle number two was even easier.  This is an older Tom Sawyer print in a cool, rustic frame.  I just popped the print off the back and gave the frame a coat of water based poly.  This deepened the color of the wood and will make it easier to keep clean.

I love framing pot lids, license plates, and other junk in rustic frames.  It gives my junk more emphasis.


I love vintage organized kitchen clutter!
